    Adobe has released the new Camera Raw 9.6 software update. Download links: Win | Mac
    Photoshop and Lightroom can now take care of DJI Phantom 4 wide angle lens photos distortion. The correction filter works great.

    thanks! do you mind specifying where the filter is? I'm an ace at Photoshop, just new to the drone. :)

    You need to download the DNG file from your SD card and open it in Photoshop CC. This will bring up Camera Raw window. From there go to Lens Correction and Phantom 4 lens should be automatically recognised. If not, select one from pull down menu.

    I'm a noob, is camera raw free and compatible with any version of lightroom/photoshop? I have LR 6.3 and don't wanna mess up the installation.

    After some digging... here are the instructions:

    Download the plugin (linked in first post). Install using exe or dmg file. When complete, open Photoshop...

    Load a jpg your Phantom 4 took you'd like to correct. Go to "Filter" at the top, then "Lens Correction...".

    You'll be able to add "DJI" as the Camera Make on the right side, with your Phantom 4 as the model/lens model.

    It makes a mild adjustment for geometric distortion.

    I created a Lens Profile for the Phantom 4 Raw and JPG almost 2 months ago, I bet the Adobe one listed in the update above is just my profile packed into the Camera Raw update

    "I don't want to mess up the installation" is the best euphemism for "I am not using a valid copy of Adobe Lightroom" that I have ever heard. Well done. Go get a student version, it's a few bucks a month.

    Doesn't LR handle DNG natively? Maybe just not this 9.6. I use PhotoShop and SpeedGrade anyhow. Sometimes I'll use LR for a quickie. It's definitely a good piece of software.

    Installed it in my PS CS6 this afternoon. Works like a champ. I have all Adobe automatic updates turned off and blocked on my wireless router so I didn't know this update was out.
